Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

There is no

objection to passing the motion on the understanding that for security reasons certain agreements cannot be produced. There are agreements with other governments respecting air routes and air transportation which are confidential and which the other governments concerned are unwilling to have made public. These agreements are not included in the list. They are valid only for the duration of the war or a short time thereafter and can have no effect upon the control of international air routes or the operation of international or commercial air lines after the conclusion of the war. I shall now table the documents requested,
